      Committee reshuffle could give Texas key immigration slot
      Associated Press

      WASHINGTON - Texas Sen. John Cornyn is being considered to head an
      immigration subcommittee, which would give Texas a stronger voice in
      immigration legislation.
      Cornyn "recognizes the importance of the issue and understands we need
      to do something about it," Don Stewart, Cornyn's spokesman, said Monday.
      It is unclear when subcommittee assignments will be completed.

      Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., is the most recent head of the Judiciary
      Committee's subcommittee, but has left the position after being named
      chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee.

      Cornyn already is chairman of the Constitution subcommittee and likely
      would have to give up that job for the immigration panel chairmanship.
      The chairmanship is offered to members based on seniority, but others
      likely to be interested in the job also head other subcommittees that they may
      not want to leave.

      Immigration reform is expected to be a top and contentious issue in the
      109th Congress.

      Cornyn sponsored a temporary guest worker bill in 2003 that would have
      allowed legal and illegal immigrants to work temporarily in the United
      States. Cornyn also pushed the administration to extend from three
      days to 30 days the amount of time Mexicans can stay in the United States when
      they cross the border for short visits.
